How was your 2021? Chances are it was a year that held a little bit of disappointment – after all, we all hoped that the cloud of COVID-19 would have been left firmly behind in 2020. That didn’t happen – and many of us have spent the last 12 months still juggling that work from home environment with family life, and missing the office and events we were all so used to.
Yet some shoots of normality have returned – and some insurance professionals have seen these challenges as opportunities. Whether they are rising stars helping to transform the industry with new outlooks, innovative forward thinkers, or seasoned veterans steering the ship successfully through rocky waters. Needless to say, these insurance industry superstars deserve celebrating – and that’s exactly what Insurance Business has done with its newly issued Hot 100 report.
Starting in August, Insurance Business America invited insurance professionals from across the country to nominate their most exceptional leaders for the seventh annual Hot 100 list. After receiving hundreds of nominations, IBA narrowed the list down to 100 movers and shakers whose contributions have helped shape the insurance industry over the past 12 months.
From innovators at the forefront of change to leaders who are transforming the way the industry does business, this year’s Hot 100 list represents the best the industry has to offer.
Among those spotlighted this year are: Heather Fong Quade of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty; Adam Wood, of Risk Placement Services; Chris Hampshire of Gallagher Bassett International; Eden Hancock of Risk Placement Services; Grace Grant, of Gamma Iota Sigma; Hannah Sullivan of SolePro; Jeanne Fenster of Berkley Small Business Solutions; John Rafferty of Arch Insurance; Joya Sobolewski of Risk Placement Services; Keti Mehta of Gallagher; Monika Bolkun-Robert of Schaefer Enterprises, a division of Patriot Growth Insurance Services; Nealy Farshadi of Brown & Riding; and Te’Shounda Fleming of Sompo International.
